Growing Old in Christ
This book presents the first serious theological reflection ever on what it means to grow old, particularly in our culture and particularly as a Christian. Eighteen writers survey biblical and historical perspectives on aging, look at aging in the modern world, and describe the "Christian practice of growing old." Along the way they address many timely issues, including the medicalization of aging, the debate over physician-assisted suicide, and the importance of friendships both among the elderly and between the elderly and the young.
Weighty enough to instruct theologians, ethicists and professional caregivers yet accessible enough for pastors and general readers, this book will benefit anyone seeking faith-based insight into growing old.
